Upcoming Events: Teen/Adult Programming & Saturday Stories

We now have not only have kids programming, but also fun events for adults !

(Find out more on our Programming page.)

Adult Programming is generally aimed at ages 13 and up, not because we’re dealing with cussing or naughtiness, but because there’s not enough for adults to do in this town and we want to change that.

The Art of Dessert explores American appetite for tantalizing and tasty confections and its impact on modern visual culture. Through the installations of artists working within the subject matter and dessert themed mixed media, the works of art featured in this exhibition provide a feast for the eyes that is well worth devouring. Delve beneath the sugarcoated surfaces of these delectable paintings, prints, sculpture, and more, and explore the deeper threads of meaning linked to our insatiable desire for sweets.

Getting from Here to There: A History of Roads and Settlements in Vermont
Sun, Nov 15th
7 pm
Orwell Free Library
The difficulties of traveling in Vermont played a significant role in the state’s settlement, development, culture and politics. But Vermonters weren’t always eager to have good roads. Novelist Deborah Lee Luskin asks, given centuries of opposition, how is it we now drive cars in all seasons, in all weather, in all corners of the state?

POP Goes History: What Coca Cola Tells Us about American History
Sun, Nov 29th
7 pm
New Haven Town Offices
The Coca Cola logo is the world’s most recognizable trademark. Both the logo and the product are so thoroughly identified with the United States that for many people, Coke is the symbol of America. Castleton professor Sanjukta Ghosh’s multimedia talk will explore how Coke’s advertising has affected not only America, but also places all over the world.

And those are just a handful of the events coming up in our neck of the woods. For more listings, see the Addison Independent’s website, the Vermont Humanities’ Events Calendar, or the Chamber of Commerce’s calendar.
